Update: It looks like Sapphire has just launched the Radeon 6700 10 GB graphics card. The card drops the 'RX' branding but features the same specifications as leaked earlier in the day. Their lineup consists of the Radeon RX 6700 PULSE and the standard RX 6700 graphics cards. The cards will be available starting the 9th of June.

The AMD Radeon RX 6700 will be a cut-down variant of the Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card. It will be based on the same Navi 22 GPU but in a different SKU configuration. While the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT features 2560 cores, the Navi 22 XL GPU on the RX 6700 will feature just 36 Compute Units enabled for a total of 2304 cores. The GPU will also feature 80 MB of Infinity Cache, reduced from 96 MB on the full Navi 22 GPU.

The card will also rock a cut-down memory bus of 160-bit and feature 10 GB of GDDR6 memory versus the 12 GB and 192-bit configuration that the top variant has to offer. It will come with a TBP of around 220W and most designs will utilize a single 8-pin connector. Display outputs will include triple DP 1.4 and a single HDMI interface.

Sapphire Radeon 6700 Pulse Graphics Card:

As for the custom variants, Sapphire seems to be working on two models, a standard reference and a PULSE variant. Both are dual slot and dual fan designs and will be clocked at 2330 MHz Game and 2495 MHz Boost clocks. The memory operates at 16 Gbps speeds so we get 320 GB/s of bandwidth. You can also note that the frequencies themselves are a 94 MHz 'Game' & a 86 MHz 'Boost' clock reduction versus the reference Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card.

As per CowCotLand, the AMD Radeon RX 6700 graphics cards are expected to launch on 9th of June for a price around 550 Euros. It will be an interesting card considering this is the third Navi 22 variant for the DIY segment. AMD also recently launched the faster RX 6750 XT graphics card. It is currently unknown if we will see more AIBs release custom variants of this graphics card or only the AMD-exclusive partners such as PowerColor, Sapphire, XFX, etc.
